Whatever you do, DON'T do what I did...
I started by depositing $25 on Party Poker
, went down to $18 and then saw the Blackjack
button. Having been playing Casino rules Blackjack since I was 15 I felt I could do OK, especially since when I've actually visited a casino and played, I have come out ahead, albeit marginally... played a few $1 hands and soon managed to scrape it back up to $25... "Good Recovery
", I hear you cry. I got over confident. Played again the next day and blew the lot in less than half an hour. Now trying to crack the freerolls instead of depositing more.
My advice... disable ALL the casino options for your Poker site
and stick to Holdem. With Blackjack you can easily win lots or lose the lot, and at $1 per deal it soon disappears. At least with Holdem you get your moneys worth and some decent gametime for your $. Not to mention there's always a Freeroll running somewhere...
